8:04 am
apologized for the company's troubles and said, quote, please don't worry about our cars. but after a week devastatingly bad news tied to a faulty gas pedal, it ththat maybe easier s than done. at an auto body shop, customers are asking about toyota. his impartial advice, avoid for now. indeed the bad news is piling up for the japanese automaker. 9 million vehicles recalled so far worldwide. consumer reports no longer recommending its cars. rental car companies no longer renting them and used car dealers moving them off their lots. toyota reportedly has a new pedal ready to ship, but it's stop and go public relations have left a lot of consumers like corolla owner mark shapiro confused if not angry. >> i will wait and see how they deal with me and the public on this issue before i ever buy another toyota. >> reporter: no wonder one
8:05 am
survey says toyota's u.s. market share this month is likely to drop to its lowest level in almost four years. dean reynolds, cbs news, chicago. >> toyota's image is taking a beating, so how do they get back on track? joining me now is the a author of crash course. good morning. so this is bad. we know that. do they make a comeback from this? >> they probably will. they are the leading of hybrid technology, but this will hurt them for a while. it will that ta them a while to regain consumer confidence. >> let's talk about trying to control the damage by shipping the new gas pedals to factories. will that help things in the short term? >> not for a few weeks at least. basically they'll have to get this approved by the federal regulator and in to dealerships and in had to the factories. so this will all take a period of weeks to get resolved at least in the physical sense. the reputational sense could
8:06 am
linker. >> talking with dealerships, they're one determining why are the pegdals going to the factories. >> i've heard conflicting reports on that whether it's going to the factories first or the dealers. it's not clear. one of the issues is their public relations effort has been spotty. >> well, let's talk about that public relations effort. what kind of blitz do they now need to reassure the public that we are the number one carmaker out there, we're going to get back to that status and your safety paramount? >> they are taking out full page newspaper ads tomorrow. that's a good first step, but a little late. i think the other thing is they have to put a face on this problem. they have to get someone in authority out on television, out on the internet saying i personally guarantee this, we're standing by this, and put a human dimension on it. >> how does something leak this happen? how does it ththis worldwide le
8:07 am
how does something like this happen? >> it's almost frankly too simple. what happened is they just tried to get too big too fast. and this problem is not sudden. the gas pedal problem is sudden, but for a pew years now, reports have been building of toyota's qualityissues. 2005, they actually recalled more cars in america than they sold. and they just expanded very quickly. they made it a goal to overtake general motors as the number one car company in the world and they've done it, but they're paying the price. >> quality, not quantity. >> exactly. >> thank you so much. erica, over to you. some good news on the economy coming this week. it grew at a vigorous 5.7% at the end of last year, but before you break out the bubbly, we should tell you this rebound was driven by businesses drawing down their inventory at a slower rate, not by consumer spending. and as many of you probably know firsthand, unemployment remains high. still at 10%. cbs news correspondent anthony mason has more. >> reporter: the battered private sector showed signs of
8:08 am
life as the u.s. economy racked up its best quarter in six years, while government spending flattened out, housing construction was up 5.7%. consumer spending just 2%. and business investment and technology surged more than 13%. >> that's the only way economic growth is going to be sustained if the private sector takes over and i think that was the really good news in this report. >> reporter: some of that good news has reached metal working solutions in chattanooga, tennessee. >> we're having a record month this month. >> reporter: the owner says his business which makes everything from floor panels for cars to doors for prisons is a good barometer of the economy. >> i now say that by april, you'll be saying on television things are getting better. >> reporter: but more than half of the economy's surmg in the fourth quarter was at rib butted to businesses restocking inventories they've cut to the bone in the recession. >> i don't think it can be sustained at that rapid pace. >> reporter: and even with its best performance in years, the
8:09 am
u.s. economy still is not producing jobs. anthony mason, cbs news, new york. >> so the improved economic picture is raising two key questions. is the nation actually coming out of the recession and does that mean more people will be able to find work? for perspective, we turn to mark zandi from westchester, pennsylvania. mark, good to have you with us. when we take a look at those figures that an honest any just brought us, the gdp racked up its best quarter in six years. how much of that can be tied to the stimulus package? >> a fair amount. 6% growth, 2% of that is stimulus. it helped to support housing and consumer spending. so the stimulus is a key part of this turn from recession to now a recovery. >> so are we then in had recovery, have we turned away and the recession is over at this point? >> yeah, the great recession is over. of course it's in a very technical sense it's probably in a sense only an economist can really appreciate.
8:10 am
not until we start to see jobs that i think people will believe that the recession is over. >> and when you talk to the average american, the recession condition feel like it's over and one of the issues is jobs. when are we into to go see a recovery in terms of unemployment or employment, rather? >> well, i'm hopeful thatto go recovery in terms of unemployment or employment, rather? >> well, i'm hopeful that by the spring we'll start to see job growth. when the gdp rises, then a quarter or two down the road, businesses start on add to their payroll so they start to hire. so that means come april, may, june, i'd expect some job growth. >> which is not too far out. there are some factors that could threaten this recovery. talk to us about some of hose because nobody wants to go backwards ear. >> we've got a few significant head winds. lack of credit, particularly for small business, this they need that credit to go out and to hire. the housing crisis continues on. we have lots of foreclosures. commercial real estate is a problem and state and local
8:11 am
governments all across the country have big budget holes and if they don't get help from the federal government, they'll be cutting jobs and programs. so it's good new, but not good l. good enough. >> and there is you mentioned those risk factors p about there is a chance of a double >> and there is you mentioned those risk factors p about there is a chance of a double dip.eno. >> and there is you mentioned those risk factors p about there is a chance of a double dip. how much of a chance is there that we could slide back wards? >> there is the risk. i'd say about one in four probability. probably the flash point would be sometime this summer. >> so we'll be looking forward to that. a lot of talk this past week about this jobs package that the president wants. you said we're going start to see a little bit of a recovery. do we need this jobs package? >> absolutely. one in four probability is too high a probability particularly when we already have a 10% unemployment rate. we cannot back slide, so we have to make sure we don't and the jobs bill is key to that. >> so good signs but not out of

if you are lucky enough to have a job, no doubt you're working very hard for your money. but is your money working hard for you some interest rates are at an all-time low. the average savings account now paying a poultry 0.24%. not even a quarter of a percent. so where should you stash your cash to get the most bang for your buck? here to tell us is a writer for money magazine. great to have you back, amanda. my husband and i were just talking about we had opened and online savings account because it had such a great return. it's at the same rate if not less than a regular bank. what happened?
8:20 am
>> it's pretty depressing. basically savings rates are tracking what's called the fed funds interest rate. that's the interest rate said by the federal reserve and the fed is really trying to stimulate this economy, to pump as much money into it as possible. so it's lowered its short term interest rate to pretty much nothing. savings rates have followed. >> and i'm guessing they're pot goi not going to go back up in the mere future. so you have good options.pot not going to go back up in the mere future. so you have good options.ot not going to go back up in the mere future. so you have good options. not going to go back up in the mere future. so you have good options. you say look at different banks. why are these better than the big national ones? >> you don't want to settle for whatever the bank down the street is paying. the regional banks, smaller banks, and the online banks are offering much higher rates on saving accounts than the bigger banks. sometimes anywhere from 1.25 all the way up to 2%. so you can search for them at sites like the one thing is you don't
8:21 am
necessarily want to go for the bank that's paying the highest yield because sometimes that can be a sign of weakness that the bank needs more capital. so actually has safety ratings, a five star system, and our role at money is to allege use an smugs that has at least three stars. >> i like that. and you also recommend credit unions which i think we all hear about, but what exactly is a credit union and how do you qualify for one? >> credit ups are paying much higher rates than the banks. they didn't get into as many problems with the subprime lending. but there's really a good chance that you will qualify for a credit union better than a few years ago. they're nonprofit organizations. ask around. family, friend, maybe through your employer, your union, your church, your alma mater. >> some of them may have a credit union that you could join. but when's the benefit to a credit union over a traditional bank? >> just because they're paying much higher rates today on your
8:22 am
savings accounts. and you can also find loans there that are much cheaper, as well. >> and they're not for profit, which is good. you also recommend a high interest reward checking account. what is that? >> these almost sound too good to be true. believe it or not, you can actually get as much as 4% return at some of these places. but the catch is at the havethet requirements. you probably have to sign occupy for a direct 2k3deposit, you ha to use your tdebit card. so it might not be worth the hassle. >> some great tips. always good to have you with us. up next, we're taking you under the radar. a dog, a huge block of ice and a research ship which just happened to be in the right place at the right time. stay with us, this is "the early show" on cbs.

9:03 am
temperatures are well below freezing, so it's the ice here which is a major factor. icy roads, falling tree limbs, and downed power lines a major factor. in oklahoma, in texas, the storm left behind quite the mess. 13 inches of snow fell in the texas panhandle and over 170,000 homes are without power in oklahoma. back here in richmond, this is an ice and snow covered interstate 95, roads are increasingly treacherous and we can get up to a foot of snow here in the southeast before this is all said and done. back to you. in other news this morning, we're returning now to haiti with fewer than 5,000 donated tents to house over a million people, haitians left homeless by the earthquake disaster are taking matters in to their own hands, rebuilding their own homes on top of their destroyed dwellings. haitian government says it will take another month to get 200 thousands tents distributed. >> maude and myrtle. two endangered sea turtles were

bowl xliv. we want to thank all of our viewers in south florida for much wag the saturday "early show" on cbs 4. chris, in to you. new york city is out as a venue to try came cleame lead shake mow ham mekhalid shaikh mohammed. >> reporter: demands justice, attorney general eric holder once declared that cakhalid shah mohammed will be tried in new york city. but criticism has the obama administration looking for a more remote and less expensive venue. new york officials say it would cost more than $200 million a year to secure a half square mile zone around the federal courthouse in lower manhattan. up to 3,000 barriers would restrict traffic. sniper teams will be positioned on rooftops.
9:07 am
heavily armed police in the treat. >> turn that entire area basically into an occupation zone. >> that's the federal courthouse -- >> reporter: public opposition is also growing. tim brown says trying the terrorists near ground zero would simply give them a stage for propaganda. >> to preach their jihad to their brethren. it's a great recruiting poster. >> reporter: the obama administration has argued there is great symbolic value in returning trilss to the scene of the crime, but that may not be worth the political or economic cost. bob orr, cbs news, washington. joining us from washington to discuss the controversy is juan czzarate. good morning to you. did anyone foresee the logistical nightmare they would have? >> i think they should have, but one of the criticisms that's now being leveled is the fact that the attorney general did not
9:08 am
consult with new york officials before making the decision. and i think in light of the security, the costs that have been briefed to not only the private sector but to city officials including mayor bloomberg, i think the realization is that the costs and disruptions would just be too great in lower manhattan. and it's just not worth it. >> at first mayor bloomberg, ray kelly said they could handle it until they found out that this trial could go from three to potentially five years at a cost of upwards of a billion dollars. how does the administration not contact new york city officials with something like this? >> well, i'm not quite sure. and i think the administration will have to answer for that because this was obviously a major decision, major decision in terms of where moving legally to handle the most serious of our al qaeda detainees. so the collection of these five defendants is the most dangerous collection of folks we have. and so now we're going to have a problem of not my backyard. people are not going to want to
9:09 am
have this trial because of the very same issue, security and cost. so the administration right now is scrambling to see where they put this. >> if new york city is out, now where do you have this trial some. >> the first instance you look for other federal courthouses. you're going to have to have a place that can handle this. it will be a multiyear affair. but the problem is cost and disruption. so a place like alexandria, virginia may not be acceptable. chicago may not be acceptable. so now they're looking at potentially military bases which they would have the security envelope but they would have a federal criminal trial in the base. that may cost money, though, as well to create the trial, the infrastructure to be able to do that. >> was there any real advantage to having it in new york aside from the symbolism? >> there was the symbolism and clearly the administration wanted to demonstrate a break from the past practices by using the federal criminal system to hold these terrorists accountable. i think, frankly, that the decision has been somewhat
9:10 am
muddled because they're not only relying on the criminal system, but they're still relying on the military commissions and as we know, they're also going to hold individuals preventively without trial. and so the mixed messages on why these decisions were made and what the criteria is, i think is adding to the confusion and to the momentum against the wisdom of it. >> any chance that this trial takes place at gitmo? >> you're starting to see both on the hill and among the 9/11 victim families and others talk about using tguantanamo facilities down there. obviously it's secure. it can be done safely. and so i think that may be an option. i don't think the obama administration will like that or will want to use that, but it may have to be put on the table. >> it would be an interesting twist, that is for sure. juan zarate, thanks so much for taking the time this morning. just ahead, the tragic death of a devoted father. will olympic silver medalist

9:15 am
farewell to her father. >> it will be one day at a time. >> reporter: one member of the family noticeably absent from the funeral, nancy's brother, 45-year-old mark kerrigan, who is currently undergoing a psychological evaluation at near by hospital after being charged with assault. according to police, kerrigan allegedly grabbed his 70-year-old father by the throat during an argument. the elder kerrigan collapsed and died of an apparent heart attack. before his death, kerrigan was probably beth known for carrying his daughter after an attacker clubbed her knee duri practice at the 1994 u.s. championships. >> whack me with this long black like stick. >> reporter: despite the bizarre attack connected to her rival, t tanya harding, kerrigan won a silver topping her bronze in '92. as for her brother, his ex-wife
9:16 am
revealed he was jealous of nancy's success. he had been arrested more than one for domestic violence. kelly wallace, cbs news, new york. >> joining us how for a closer look at the case, wendy murphy and dr. wecht. wendy, as we mentioned, mark kerrigan is facing assault charge, but you leave those could be upgreated to manslaughter. why? >> well, there's a very real risk they could be upgraded. we need to seat autopsy first, but there's no question that mark kerrigan strangled his father.autopsy first, but there's no question that mark kerrigan strangled his father. which was followed by a heart attack and hen death. so prosecutors can connect the dots in terms of show has gone there was a legal connection between the strapg ngulation, ss
9:17 am
and then death. if you can make the case, that's manslaughter, but they have to know that he knew or should have known what he was doing might cause substantial harm or death. an given his history of violence, his awareness of his father's heart can be, i think that's a pretty good case. >> in terms of that evidence, dr. wecht, when that autopsy comes out, is it going to be clear, you can learn from an autopsy that, in fact, this alleged strangulation actually led to shaome sort of a heart attack? >> the most likely answer from a purely forensic pathological standpoint is no. i agree with wendy's reasoning and analysis and i've been involved in cases like that and have one now pending on a very similar scenario. if you compress someone's neck, you can have a the two major
9:18 am
arteries feeding oxygen up to the brain and if you can press one or both even for a few second, you can have then a situation in which that d diminution of oxygen. and you have to show that the efbl events moved forward in that fashion.autopsy itself may not show anything and then the question is since the cardiac arrhythmia can't be shown, what agree of heart disease did he have, how long was compression on the neck, was it inadvertent. >> obviously those medical points are important. wendy, the defense is obviously going use that if in fact there
9:19 am
is a manslaughter charge in their favor. and if the man did have a pre-existing heart condition, couldn't that in fact be the cause of death? >> indeed it cuts both ways. they'll say he knew about it, mark kerrigan knew and thus shouldn't have put any pressure on this guy's neck because he knew or should have known that that might aggravate his condition and potentially cause serious injury or death. here's what's important to though. it doesn't have to be the only cause. the strangulation, the fight doesn't have to be the only cause for mark to be convicted, just a cause. but you can beth his defense team will find an expert to say this guy would have had a heart attack anyway that's reasonable doubt. >> a lot of people will be watching very closely and the case as well. wendy, dr. wecht, appreciate your insight this morning. we'll lighten the mood a little bit here. does this orange turn you on? sorry. just ahead, foods that put you in the mood. essential edibles guaranteed to

with liver, gallbladder, or severe kidney disease, or nursing women. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you are pregnant or may become pregnant. blood tests are needed before and during treatment to check for liver problems. contact your doctor if you delop unexplained muscle pain or weakness, as this can be a sign of a rare but serious side effect. this risk may be increased when trilipix is used with a statin. if you cannot afford your medication, call 1-866-4-trilipix for more information. trilipix. there's more to cholesterol. get the picture.
